(Covers information from Anderson's universe)
Rain Ocampo was a member of an Umbrella special forces commando unit. During the outbreak in Hive, she and the other operatives were sent down into the underground facility to contain the infection. Rain was later cloned for experimentation by the Red Queen.
She, Matt Addison, and J.D. encountered the first zombie, who they thought was a crazed survivor. The infected woman attacked Rain, and Rain was bitten savagely on the hand, thus becoming infected with the t-Virus. J.D. shot the woman several times but scored no headshots, leaving the zombie still standing until Rain blew it away with a burst from her MP5K. J.D. remarked in shock how the woman could remain standing after he shot her five times, to which Rain responded that she wasn't standing anymore. Both were further shocked to discover her gone despite being shot innumerable times, but she then jumped out to attack Rain again. Permanently dropping the zombie with a neck breaker, Rain, J.D., Kaplan and Matt Addison were attacked by a horde of zombies while waiting for their teammates. She sustained more bites over the course of the survivors' escape from the Hive, speeding up the rate of infection. During a battle with the zombies, Rain was bitten again whilst trying to save J.D., who perished at the end of the battle, leaving Rain heartbroken.
A tough young woman from the beginning, Rain was still determined to prove her worth as a valuable asset to the team of survivors. She taunted the zombies often and killed many of them, but was bit again when hesitating upon seeing a zombified J.D. After he bit her, she finally decided to put him out of his misery.
At the brink of leaving the Hive and eventually discovering Spence 's betrayal and death, they were forced to restart the Red Queen in the hopes that she would provide them with the information necessary to escape. The Red Queen promised to provide them with the four-digit access code only on the condition that Janus Prospero would kill Rain, which would keep the infection from escaping the Hive.
The Queen conjectured that the time elapsed since Rain's infection would drastically lessen the effectiveness of the serum, thus she would not allow Janus and the remaining survivors to leave, even though the anti-virus remained in a suitcase on a platform outside of the room they were trapped in.Janus refused to comply with the Red Queen and silenced the Queen's urging to murder Rain with the blow of an Axe to the security monitor she was speaking from. They would have remained locked in the room had Kaplan (thought dead) not fried the Queen's circuitry, which unlocked all doors in the facility.
Rain and the other survivors managed to reach the train. Janus administered the anti-virus to her and hoped it would work. However, their troubles were not over yet, as they were forced to fight with the now mutated Licker. During their fight, Rain transformed into a zombie and lunged to attack, and Matt was forced to shoot her in the head, killing her instantly, though her fall hit the button, which dropped the Licker to its death after it got burned. After its death, Janus looks over Rain's corpse, saddened of her death.
Five years after her death, Rain, alongside Carlos Olivera and One, was cloned by the Red Queen in the underwater facility, Umbrella Prime. Rain's clones were used to in facility testing scenarios to map how the t-virus would spread in an controlled environment in order to sell the virus to the highest bidder. Two clones of Rain were used in the Umbrella Prime experimentation. One, "Bad Rain", worked as the security detail of the facility, working alongside Jill Valentine. The other was civilian in the Raccoon City simulation. Neither clones were aware of the original Rain's relationship with Janus or her life. "Bad Rain" was studious, straightforward and to the point. "Good Rain" was a self-professed activist who disliked guns and advocated gun control.
In a deleted scene, another civilian Rain clone was bitten and infected by a zombie. However, the third Rain character was later removed from the film.
